God's Word is our guide
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God. Inspired by God the Holy Spirit, the Bible is:
- Infallible (completely trustworthy).
- Inerrant (without error).
- Sufficient (for revealing all necessary for faith and life).
- Authoritative (it must shape how we think and live)
What does 'Reformed' or 'Reformation' mean?
The word "Reformed" refers to the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century. The church had been drifting from the teaching of the Bible. People like Martin Luther and John Calvin sought to bring the church back in line with what the Bible taught.
- Scripture Alone—the Bible alone is our highest authority.
- Faith Alone—we are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
- Grace Alone—we are saved by the grace of God alone.
- Christ Alone—Jesus Christ is the only way to God
- To the glory of God alone—we live for the glory of God alone.

Our creeds and confessions are always subject to what the Bible says.
We hold to the following confessions of the Reformation:
